The power was off from about 10 to 2:15 today, but since we have a whole house generator we had plenty of power, just no WIFI. I need to get a UPS for the modem.The wind has been brutal but little rain.
Joy, isn't corner cleaning what winter is for??!
I need go get in my bathroom nooks and crannies. The change in season lighting has made that apparent.

Good morning, team! Got up this morning and did both a core workout and upper body, and it feels good. I have to remember the good feeling so that I keep this streak up - I know as we get older it's important to do the s/t, but it does take discipline! Have to keep moving so I can get ready to head out of town. Enjoy the weekend!

Good Morning All, Beautiful day here. I slept in this morning; the little guy wore me out yesterday. Still sweet but he was very needy; just didn't feel good and where he's usually very busy he just didn't seem to know what to do with himself. Teeth and ears; the toddler's nemesis.
Nice having the house open these cooler mornings. My house really needs some attention. I'm going to open up and clean in the lower level today. Need to "get in the corners" if you know what I mean. Housework takes a backseat to yardwork for me. Life is good. Enjoy your weekend.

Hi everyone,

weather has warmed up a bit today and is pleasant and sunny. emoticon

I have been playing outdoors with the dogs throughout the day and then took an hour and a half to clean out our storage room to make room for my granddaughter's bay furniture and clothes. After 2 months my granddaughter has finally cleared the baby's things which was heart wrenching. She cried when she dropped the baby's stuff off yesterday and I had a long chat with her about having another baby. She had vowed to never have another in fear of losing it again. I have told her that it isn't likely that this would happen again and having another child will help her to fill the empty arms she has.

I lost my firstborn 41 years ago and and he was 4 days old, Madison was 10 days. Both deaths were a sudden onset and within hours they were gone.
Having another bay 10.5 month later helped me with my aching heart although I still grieve the loss of my son 41 years later.
I was blessed to have 4 children after the loss of m y son and then a 5th child who we adopted (our daughter who lives in Denmark)

I am pleased that my granddaughter is beginning to have some closure but we still have not heard from the coroner as to what happened and caused Madison to not survive. One day soon we shall hear something.

I am counting down the days until my departure for Denmark now and have been getting things in order to pack. Every days goes by quickly so it helps me with my anxiousness to embark on my trip over to see my new granddaughter , daughter and son in law.
I am also excited about seeing my friends when I fly over to Scotland for 3 days. It has been 2 years since they visited me and I miss them dearly.

Anyway, that's been my day so far. Hope everyone is having a good one and looking forward to a great weekend.

I've been reading but not commenting for a bit. Feeling guilty that I am not maintaining. Two funerals in less than a week should be motivating me to do better on tending to my health but somehow ...
Can't do much exercise these days as advisories say stay indoors out of the smoke that is drifting in from fires in Washington state. The haze is kind of depressing as well. Looking fwd to the return of sun.
Have a good weekend all with what ever you choose to do. I am going to do some curling up with reading materials. I never get enough of that, returning to my childhood when my nose was always in a book!

Bit of a muddle at work lots of people still on holiday and a colleague who has been off sick for a month came back for a few days and needed to go off sick again yesterday and it looks like it will be long term. So all of August I have juggled trying to cover everyone will be glad they will be back by the end of next week.
Makes me so glad I am aware of my health mentally and physically helped by sparks

Susan, I think they are just sniffing --that's what dogs do! :) Glad it's Friday! Going to Mpls tomorrow to take in a Twins game, so it will be a very long day - leave at noon and get back after midnight. But we are baseball nuts, so we will do it! Plan to pick up my brother and sister-in-law on the way since we were given 4 tickets. Will get my "moderationability" tested with ballpark food & drink tomorrow!

Good Morning All, It's a GGS day. Hoping he's feeling better, he had an ear infection earlier in the week. Fine when up, difficulty napping, I'm sure he's on his way by now. All is well here.

Morning Guys
sorry I've not posted, thought I had it's such a second nature LOL
Good to see everyone in good spirits and Joy I'm so glad you're doing well.

Lovely day here today after a gloomy one yesterday, want to take in all the sun I can before autumn really sets in. That said we had some lovely autumn days last year so not too down about its onset.
Have a wonderful weekend my friends emoticon

Doctor appointment went well and I'm feeling good. No diet or exercise restrictions except limiting caffeine and alcohol. I've already reduced both to an acceptable level and don't have to turn down an occasional glass of wine. I could easily give up alcohol more easily than caffeine. Alas, caffeine is more of a threat. My cup of coffee in the morning and a cup of tea in the afternoon keep me comfortable and are acceptable. The heart condition is not reversible without surgery and that is not being considered as long as it can be controlled with medication. Which it is; all my numbers today were good. My body seems to have adjusted well to the medication, I still tire more easily than I used to but still do pretty good for my 73 years! I'm not yet up to my usual level of activity but working on it; that's as much from being off my feet so much for 6 weeks as the heart issue. Overall, I'm doing fine and life continues to be good. Smiles.

This morning I got an awesome power walk in with my little Chihuahua. He (Tyson) is a phenomenal walker and keep my pace so easily. He loves the distance too but I don't go any farther than 3-5 miles with him because he is just such a little guy.....
These are my 4 dogs, Homer is the big guy, Tobi on the left Tyson in the middle and Sassy (Tobi's sister) on the right. Looks like they are grazing but have no idea of what they were doing.



The weather is coolish today but it is the best walking weather. I wore a cardigan to start my walk but removed it half way through. Tomorrow the heat returns and the weekend will be up to almost 30C

Summer is still here Whoo Hoo!

Have a great day ladies.

NFC, I had very good luck with FB customer service -- can't remember if I called them or e-mailed them, but they have replaced two Fitbits -- one that had cracked and one that was lost, so I hope you will get yours taken care of! Thanks for the warning on Windows 10 - glad I procrastinated with loading it! Just made the final payment on our trip to the Caymans - only 5 weeks from today and we will be there!

Jeri, nice view from your office (not so much the cattle trailer).
My new FB Chg HR has quit twice on me in four days! I am not pleased as each time I lose all the steps from the time it stops to the time I discover it and can get to my other FB, which can be a lot of steps! I've written them and expect a permanent solution or it gets returned.
Today was practice bowling to get ready for the 33 week season to begin next Wed. A fall.winter routine.
Yesterday I set my computer back to Win 8.1 and got rid of Win 10. Too many crashes and RAM consumption to be worth having. Beware.
Gotta go watch the Mariners win a ball game!

Well, today the plumbers are supposed to come to my house. It started out as a rusted pipe below the kitchen sink -- easy, cheap fix. Then it was "as long as they're here, we should get that corroded faucet replaced." Which led to, "Well then we might as well get the 2nd faucet (for drinking water) replaced too." Which led to, "And the sink is getting old and water spotted, so let's just have them put a new sink in, too." And so a $50 job has now turned into $500+." Should've gone a step further and had the counter tops upgraded too, but that will have to wait!!

Marilyn, there are cows and horses (mostly cows). This is the best location for an office -- ever

I do wish we had a picnic table. Today I sat on the sidewalk to eat my lunch, right beside the cattle trailer (which usually isn't parked right there). I'm glad it was clean. Even so, I don't mind the smell of cow poo. My coworker posted a pic of me and said, "When she misbehaves, we make her eat her lunch on the sidewalk."

Hi Everybody!
Patti, WTG on the early morning workout!
Susan, Glad that you had a nice visit with your DGD.
Jeri, What a lovely view from your office. How fitting to have a porta potty business located on a farm...LOL. Are there any cows, horses, or other farm animals there that serve as an "inspiration" for the clean up business? Just makes me chuckle to picture you there.

Joy, have a great day with GGS. So adorable!
Cat, Glad that Snickers is on the mend.
Judy, Enjoy your pickle ball.

Today I am having the carpet cleaners in. They are long overdue.
Tonite I am doing miniature golf with my red hat friends.
Have a great day!

Good morning everyone,
it is a cool day here right now (only 59f) and will only go into the high 60's. It actually is a good day for me as I need to cook my dog home made food for my dog with liver disease. It takes me a good 4 hours to make dog food and sometimes more if I am doing a large variety of vegetables.

Jeri, what a beautiful view from your office. I would love working with a view like that.
Joy have a great day with your ggs
Cat, I am so happy to hear that Snickers is doing well and way to go on getting in fall crops in.

Well I am off to finish my cup of tea and get started on cooking.
Have a super dee dooper great day.

Good morning! It's an absolutely gorgeous day, and I've decided to dress comfortably at work. I ran a very difficult, but refreshing, 4 miles in the chilly pre-dawn. Now it's time to do what I get paid to do, I reckon. Have a great day! emoticon

Greetings all.
I spent some time in my garden tidying up and planting some fall crops. It was a beautiful day to be out there.
Short walk since Snickers shouldn't be pounding the pavement quite yet like we usually do.

Marilyn, that's a good suggestion from Sparkguy - may try it! Good to hear from another who loves sitting on the front porch with the windchimes. One Christmas my kids treated me to Music of the Spheres windchimes. You should check them out. They are expensive, but sound so beautiful. It's a chilly day here, but sunny. I haven't been able to get to pickleball for a couple weeks, so am looking forward to playing tonight. That will be my cardio for the day.

Hi all.
Snickers is on the mend. The vet gave me options and I went with no stitches as the wound is healing over. She cleaned it out and shaved around it (looks icky) and gave prescriptions with admonition not to lick it. Snickers, not me!
It was a whirl wind morning/day with groomers and produce shop and prescription stop.
Great market, huh? ERG...........

Good evening ladies,

well I am back home now and glad to be hear. I loved the time with my granddaughters but I really miss my own kitchen and bed when I am gone.
I don't like the town I live in because it is so flat but I do love my comfortable home.
I wish I could move it to Brantford because I love the layout and the landscape of Brantford. They have so many wonderful trails for walking and running and exploring.

MNNICE, congrats on the weight loss and getting back to routines. I have only done strength training once this weekend so tonight I am getting my weights out and doing my arm exercises.

Marilyn, glad you are finding Spark Coach beneficial to you. Visual effects can always be a good motivator to us as well as they are reminders of our goals and what we are striving to look like and feel like when we reach them.

CAT, how is Snickers doing?
Joy hope you enjoyed your outing with your friend at lunch time.

Well I am off to get my weight done but want to wish everyone a great evening and day tomorrow.

I

I WILL reach my GOAL!
I WILL fight for it!
I WILL NOT give up!
NOTHING will STOP me!

Hi Everybody!
Susan, Hope you had a lovely time with your DGD.
Cat, It takes a bit to get used to a more advanced Fitbit, but well worth it. I just found out today
I could download the Fitbit app to my phone and use it as a GPS device on a walk. It helped DH who got lost on a walk. He was able to retrace his steps and get back to the car.
Hope Snickers is on the mend ASAP.
Jeri, Sorry to hear your dad was having an extra bad day. Thank goodness he has you to look in on him sometimes and visit.
Caz, Congrats on helping DH to get in better shape. I know you set a great example for him.
Hope your Botox issue isn't serious. I know the treatments are a real godsend for you.

I do share everyone's concern about the stock market. But our funds are fairly diversified, so that helps me not to worry too much about it. Eventually it will come back around.

Beautiful here today as we relax on the front porch and hear the wind chimes. I am finding Spark Coach to be very helpful and encouraging. I also followed his tip about motivational or goal boards. I already had one I had created before. Spark Guy suggested taking a photo of it and making it the wallpaper on your phone, PC, or tablet device. That is really helping me
keep my goals in mind.

Have a great day!

Marilyn

Rats, had a whole message almost finished and hit a wrong button and made it all disappear! Hoping, too, that the stock market straightens out - I will need those retirement funds in a few years! Had another good weekend and the scale is showing downward movement, so things are going in the right direction! Also am beginning my second week of getting back to strength training and core work. I can feel a difference already and need to stay back in this habit!

Good Morning All, All is well here. Easy day, cooler and comfortable out too. Meeting a friend for a late lunch, more likely dessert, this afternoon. I do either/or - not both. Works for me. I eat healthy at home, dessert out is a treat.
Patti, sounds like you are on a good fitness program! WTG!
Caz, I'm confident you'll keep your medical people on track. Stay well.
Cat, let us know how it goes with Snickers.
Anne, I did butterflies with my grandkids one summer. Home made set up; they were swallowtails. Alas, can't find the pictures. Better with files now than I was then. :)

Good morning everyone. Just got done doing my morning exercises with the recumbent bike, I rode the bike for 15 minutes this morning. I did some of the strength exercises at home last night. They have an exercise class Mon-Wed in the morning so I was not able to do any of the other exercises.

Morning Guys
Joy you hit the nail on the head- the move has been good! Admittedly with John not being well this past 3 months the cycling has fallen by the wayside but he's been busy working in the loft (hard graft) and not taking up the multi gym has got to be good for him, And me- less worried about him keeping his diabetes etc in check! Just seen your latest blog, you did well in your garden considering you were feeling under par. What an abundance of produce!
Susan great plans for the weekend, your trip is coming around fast!.
Anne I swear DH is expecting a gold star LOL. He keeps on about how GOOD he's being. emoticon I shouldn't mock- it's good to see him so motivated. Great idea for DGD to learn about nature.
Patti emoticon
Judy never heard of frozen creamed corned- sounds like a heart attack waiting to happen emoticon
Jeri well done on your longest run but sorry to hear your dad is struggling. Fun for your daughter and her friend of 20 years to both be expecting- they can share each other's pregnancy highs and lows.
Cat poor Snickers...........hope he heals quickly. Wise to pop into the vets.

Weather is making it's mind up still this morning although rain has been forecast- the lawns need it, got them cut and edged yesterday afternoon but in time before the shower at 4.
Hoping for a morning walk and a good workout then maybe helping in the loft.
Back to the botox clinic tomorrow after just 2 months instead of 3- this worries me but I'll check it with Dr Lee before he starts injecting.

Have a good week everyone, keep active.

Howdy everyone and happy Sunday.
Went grocery shopping today and walked a lot doing it. Got home and took Snickers for a walk but he wasn't doing great so I had to slow down and shorten the walk. His gash is at his wrist (rear leg).
Have to take the dogs to groomer tomorrow morning but will slip by the vets near there to see if Snick needs a couple stitches and I am thinking he doesn't need to go through the bath process.
Have a great week what ever you are all doing. Let's hope the stock market doesn't continue tanking.................

Good morning everyone,

what a wonderful and sunny day it is already. Warm but not too hot. Went for a 2 mile walk with the 3 dogs already and plan on a run for myself shortly.
Wanted to stop by and wish everyone a great day.

Good Morning All, All is well here. Really had a nice week and looking forward to another. Good things happening for the grandkids and that's always a day brightener. Odds and ends to do today; work in my office, putz in the yard and make a batch of pasta sauce from garden tomatoes and peppers after I do an end of summer garden blog. Life is good. Enjoy your Sunday!

WTG CAZ!
I did get my new FB Charge HR today. Having some trouble with settings, etc but I am so impatient with new things I am sure it's just 'human error' and I'll settle down and get it squared away soon.
Snickers cut his leg just before we sat down for dinner and it is gashed pretty deep. Stupid run to get out a almost closed door at high speed. He has settled down now and perhaps I'll be able to wrap it. The first wrap was off by the time I turned my back.

Checking in. It's been a pretty good day today. I went to AutoZone with my hubby. Then came home and ran 4.85 miles. It's my longest run since I broke my foot. I put a roast in the crockpot, and then went to see my dad. He's having a very bad day, and is really agitated. They had to give him some ativan to calm him down. Tomorrow hubby and I are getting up for a 7:30am bike ride along the new (not open yet) section of US 68 between Millersburg and Paris. It's about 6 or 7 mile each direction, so we should get in a good ride. Then I'm heading up to Northern Kentucky to visit my daughter. We're going to her friend's baby shower. They've been friends for 20 years, and now they're each expecting. It will be fun to have a girl day with my oldest girl. I haven't seen her in about 6 weeks.She sends me belly pictures every week, but I want to see her belly in real life. She is due in January. Her friend (the one whose shower we're attending) is due in September.

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

"Tis the season for lots of fresh produce, so we made a trip to the Hutterite Colony this morning. They have the BEST corn, so we bought some so hubby can made his famous frozen creamed corn (yes, real cream and butter), but it is a treat we have at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Also got some of their delicious cantelopes, a jar of saurkraut, a chicken pot pie, banana peppers, pork chops and garlic. We are also stocked on peppers, tomatoes and cukes right now, thanks to friends who have green thumbs and like to share!

Good morning Ladies,
I am up in Brantford again with my granddaughter and their dogs. I brought my little Chihuahua up with me because he is so attached. I would like to take him the Denmark with me next month but it's a long flight and I don't want to put him through that.

Going to Kitchener today where my granddaughter will be auditioning for a dance production. Since theatre arts and dance is her career of choice, I am really hoping she makes the cut.

Looks like it will be a great day of sunshine and cooler temps. Will pick up my youngest granddaughter once I am in Kitchener and the weekend should be a blast with the two of them.
Sending best wishes to everyone for an awesome day and weekend.

Good Mornining All, All is well here. Cool this morning and promises to be a nice day. Having lunch this afternoon with DS and DGS who is home from college this weekend. Always a good visit.
CAZ, you were well on your way before your move but I swear, I think the move has added years to your DH's life! From couch potato to biker and now weight trainer. Your good example enters in too as well as having health conscious supportive friends. It's all good! Having good medical support is part of the package but you two deserve a LOT of credit! emoticon
Life is good!
Stay well all!

Morning guys
Thanks everyone for your good wishes,I could not believe I recognised my consultant from when he was in London working in the movement disorder clinic there. Small world. Feel more confident things are moving in the right direction now.
Joy glad you're feeling more like you again!
Patti emoticon
Anne don't you just hate when that happens LOL- enjoy the weekend- hey won't be long before the bank holiday!!!!
Judy so pleased for you the lessons are paying off.
Cat sounds like you could be self sufficient.

Expected heatwave here today so getting some ST in early then going to enjoy it.
DH has finally got around to using the multi gym we bought ourselves for Xmas 2008 when my fitness kick had well and truly "kicked in". Yes he used it occasionally but of late he;s using it every day and doing every exercise bar one as displayed on the demonstration plaque on the side of it. And it's paying off already! He's getting that inverted triangle torso look and is gaining his waistline back, love handles are gone emoticon
This time last year the diabetes nurse wanted him to lose 14 pounds emoticon and he goes for his check up in a fortnight.............he's so chuffed that working together we got him there!.

Hi everybody!
I have been busy, but promised myself I would catch up reading all your posts, even if I make minimal comments.

Patti, WTG on the new fitness plan. You are inspiring me to take mine to the next level.
Hope you get AOL straightened out.
CAT, Hope you got your new Fitbit by now. You will lve the Charge HR!
CAZ, Prayers for John.
Jeri, Glad you reported the creepy guy. Very scary.

I had a wonderful time in Indianapolis. We stayed in a lovely Marriott downtown overlooking a river that is part of a state park that runs right thru downtown. All kinds of museums nearby.
Amazing view from my room.
We did get to tour the NCAA Hall of Fame, which has a great emphasis on women in collegiate sports. It was refreshing that it was not all about the guys and their achievements.

Catching up with unpacking and such. Today was Merry Maids day. It makes me very merry that the house is all clean and tidy.

Have a great weekend.

Yesterday got busy and I didn't get a chance to get all my Sparking done! It was a good day, though. I had my organ lesson during lunch time, and I feel like I have made some progress this summer, considering he is working with a 60-something self-taught musician - he has given me some good tips and I think I will be a better organist. Who said you can't teach an old dog new tricks?????! Looks like a fairly quiet weekend ahead, so we're planning to spend the night at the cabin. I*'m looking forward to a "nature walk" along the lake after supper. Anne, getting right back on track is key to success, so keep it up!

Love to read how active everyone is despite previous problems. I had a couple of days when I have just stuffed my face...too much at work and sometimes easier to eat than saying no. Then when I got home lots of wrong choices. However now off work till Tuesday and right back on track.

just got back my first workout at work. It was hard but once I get going I will get used to it. I did the recumbent bike for 30 minutes then we went into strength exercises which were the plank, bridge and step louuges and then the step ups. Then we did dumbbell curls and dumbbell over the head presses.

I tried the treadmill but the instructor did not want me to hold on to the handles, but that was hard for me so that why we went to the bike.

The program is: The bike 5 times a week and the other strength exercises 3 times a week

Good Morning All, A little tired this morning but had a great day yesterday. First day that felt really normal activity wise since I fell in May. Felt good!
Patti, glad you solved your AOL problem!
CAZ, fantastic that everything went so well yesterday and that you're getting reconnected with people that really understand what you are dealing with and LISTEN, trusting what you share.
Glad everyone is staying so active. Stay well. Life is good.

Susan, that is an amazing accomplishment for your niece!

Caz, good luck today!!

Joy, I'm glad you're enjoying the recumbent bike

Good morning, Patti. I hope you figure out your AOL issues. Computers can be frustrating!

The storms last night kept my husband awake, and therefore, I slept poorly. He does not know how to stay awake quietly. Oh well. I will muddle through the day, and hopefully the weather will clear enough that when I get off work I will be able to run a few miles after visiting my dad. We'll see.

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

Good Morning All, All is well here. Recumbent bike is helping a lot in rebuilding stamina and getting my fitness minutes back up. $10 well spent! :)

CAZ, I hope you "click" too; it's important. Let us know how the day goes.

Patti, I hope you solve the AOL woes.

Susan, A beautiful attitude note and a busy household indeed!!

Stay well everyone and make today great!

Good morning everyone. It has finally cooled down a bit today and rain is here. Hopefully the humidity will stay gone for a while now. Sun is to return later in the day.

It's been a bust household here as I am taking care of my sister's 9 month old dog for 2.5 weeks while she and her family are in Italy. My niece (her youngest daughter) is climbing in The World's Bouldering Competition. Last year she competed in New Caledonia just above Australia. My niece is the Canadian Champion in her age category (17 year old)

With my 4 dogs and cats and an added dog, it makes for lots of fun and action.Sending best wishes out to everyone for a great day.

Good morning. I am a little frustrated. Last night I downloaded the latest version of AOL and even though I can sign on, the only thing that I have access to is my e-mail. I can't access any websites at all. I hope that I can get access to Spark People and other websites via the regular internet. I will try that tonight. Just wanted you to know that I may not be able to log into Spark People at home.

Morning guys
much to do before we leave for the hospital this afternoon to finally see that consultant.
Taking my gizmo and monitor for my implant on the off chance he gets time to check it and medication and some notes on my medical history to keep- saves a lot of questions.
I have questions of my own, I hope we click!!!!!

Have a good one
